Gabriel Hillel's curator insight, January 31, 2014 1:14 PM

After the Internet is accessible,

 

We are creating two different worlds, between the haves--Google Scholastic--and the have-nots--Google in higher education.   As an undergraduate student at an on-line accredited college, I was not given access to Google Scholastic.  Neither were the others.

 

We were taught appropriate methods of citing in texts and in references--but not given access to those in Google Scholastic.

 

Upon  graduation, the result is no different.  For alumni, even those who have had access to Google Scholastic, such access is lost.

 

Today, works that I have written--including a Treatise on Independent Advocacy for Dependent Populations, for which the U.S. paid $30,000--I cannot access.   I cannot access hundreds of citations of my works and cases I initiated.

 

Certainly on-line students at accredited universities should have access to Google Scholastic.  If they were  I would offer courses in the uses and development of research.   Every college student if not every secondary school student as well should have the opportunity to learn how to do research, including appropriate note taking, investigation, group interaction, if s/he is to be fully educated.

 

Before the Internet, publishers at least gathered information from many sources, developed files, used fact checkers, and made the data available directly or indirectly to their public.   Now research has been divided, even for investigative journalists, between those having access only to Google, and those with access to Google Scholastic.

 

Let us figure out ways to bridge this gap, or the idea of universal access to the internet will do nothing more than create a segregated separate and unequal national and international society.
